Advancedone said:I'm pretty sure Menchov was using the 7801 c24-tu. They have the nipples at the hubs.
The later 7850 c24-tu's moved the nipples out to the rims.
Either set is very nice.
Advancedone said:Not sure on that one.
I had read that the team mechanics didn't like the nipples at the hub on the 7801's because they were harder to true if it was needed.
Nipples at the hub should be slightly lighter (from a rotational perspective) and slightly more aerodynamic than exposed nipples at the rims, however the difference would have to be marginal. My guess is that Menchov likes them so he gets them. I like mine, stiff, light and very aero for a lower profile rim.

Just curious, anybody knows what wheelsets does Team Rabobank use? I thought it was DuraAce WH-7850-C24-TU, but it seems that the Hubs are different than 2009 DuraAce Wheelsets.
Your argument really does make sense. So, you are using the new TCR Advanced SL? I'm looking for that frame but it seems nobody has it yet in my country, so I bought the TCR Advanced.
Since the road condition is not that clean, I am thinking of getting the WH-7850-C24-TL. And I planning to use Tubeless tires. Any insight on that particular wheelset?
